The Punisher War Journal

    (Marvel, 1988-1995)
™ and ©1988 Marvel Entertainment Group

Frank Castle, the Punisher, considers himself to be fighting a war. His war is upon the criminals, the drug dealers, and others who prey upon the innocent. In his war, the Punisher plans his attacks, then strikes without mercy. He takes no prisoners.

Punisher War Journal was introduced following the success of “Punisher,” Marvel’s monthly series. “War Journal” has a harder edge than the monthly series, bringing a more realistic feel to Marvel’s most popular vigilante.
